    I've upgraded to a Mark III purple stripe combo and I'm loving the tones I'm getting, however, the V7/V8 combo in my RG2020xtb just doesn't cut it. I'm looking for something with a little more punch especially for palm mutes. Some tones I'm looking for are Testament (particularly that smooth...

    Hey guys, I have an Ibanez RGT42FX and a Mesa Mark IV widebody combo. I am going for John Petrucci's tone from the Liquid Tension Experiment era. Would the Steve's Special or Tone Zone help me achieve this tone? Remember, the Ibanez RGT42FX is a neck through maple guitar with mahogany body...

    guys, Is there any difference between the two coils in the Paf Pro and Fred? I'm coil splitting them with the middle Ibanez S1 single-coil. Is there also a right direction to mount them?

    Hi guys, I am in the market for a new amp - I currently use a 5150 head with a 4x12 Marshall. My question is: What amplifier do you think sounds best with the Jem7vwh? A few thoughts so far - it is a relatively bright sounding guitar, so I thought that it may be complemented well by a darker...

    I'm thinking of trying something new for tube driven tone, so thinking of a Super distortion or Super 3 in the bridge. What would mate well with this for the neck? Super 2?

    I have been played for 14 years. I play vaish style. I plan to change my rg370dx's neck pickups. So, I wonder which pickups will give more quality resulst as vai sound. I played paf pro at neck positions. But I didnt like it as vaish tone. But I never use evo at neck position. Now I will buy...

    Hi, Loads of reviewers on Harmony Central say that they love the UV777P but hate the 'scooped mid' Blaze II pickups, some suggest changing to Evo7's or Tone Zone 7's. Anyone on this forum tried changing the pickups and what was the outcome, did it make a hell of a lot of difference? Chris

    Hey guys, I hate to be asking this, because I know people ask it all the time. But I've looked around and done a bunch of research already, and I just need some help on what would be best for me, as I know there are a lot of very knowledgeable posters here. I'm looking to replace the NECK...

    I've been working with a local custom shop (Voodoo Guitar Works) to build a guitar, and today's the day I get to pick the guitar up. :) Overall, the guitar is kinda like a McCarty standard (carved mahogany body, set mahogany neck), with the following features... - reverse headstock - original...

    Hey there, I need a little advice for my only HSS Radius. The neck Pickup (S1) sounds absolutely weak, lifeless and is practicably useless, so it's time to gather opinions. Although I know that this is a great opportunity to get a 'real' singlecoil for diversity, I'm seriously considering...

    ... a J-Custom RG8670 TB. I had planned on replacing it with a JS from Ibanez Rules (sorry Rich) but then I saw this last weekend. And it is rather wonderful, and really does feel a lot more sumptuous than the 7VWH I had before it. It's a real step up in build quality and feel. The neck. Oooh...

    Guys, Yet another pickup question. Currently this USRG30 has the PAF Pro in the neck and the TZ in the bridge. I am thinking of keeping the TZ in the bridge since the alder/maple cap should be fairly bright according to more knowledgeable forum members than I. Since I think the TZ tends to get...
